Cyber Security Week

Cyber Security Week - Frenchay, Glenside and Bower Ashton


i-Patch Pirates

You are a Target!

Everyone is a potential victim to cyber criminals and you should expect to be targeted.

Come and immerse yourself in a range of free, fun and interactive pirate themed activities throughout the week.

The new and improved i-Patch Pirates online game, brought to you by UWE Bristol PlayWest students working out of The Foundry, is now live!

The i-Patch Pirates universe has been expanded this year to include two new mini-games, to help you identify phishing and how to keep you, your data and your devices safe from cyber-crime:

  • Patch-IT
    (Located at the jetties)
    Can you keep your ship patched and update your defenses, before the Ghost Ship sends you to the bottom of the sea?
  • Gone Phishing
    (Located at the damaged ships)
    Go fishing for bottles before 'Chompy' the shark destroys them, then identify the phishing messages inside to stop 'Inky' the squid from attacking you!
  • Hornswoggle
    (Bury your gold on land)
    Last year's favourite mini-game makes a welcome return. The bubble popping, treasure chest, codebreaking game.
    Can you keep matching 3 or more colours in a row to reach the locks?

The highest scorer of these mini-games will win a £20 Amazon Voucher each day, or play each mini-game to enter the free prize draw for a £50 Amazon Voucher.

Explore the world of i-Patch Pirates and climb the ranks by collecting gold. Which pirate will sail above the rest to win a £50 Amazon Voucher? Only time will tell!
